Ernest A. Savory

In 1884 Ernest A. Savory, a young Englishman who had just attained the legal age of manhood came to the United States to avail himself of the opportunities here afforded young men of character, energy and ambition to work out a career. Nearly thirty years have passed since then and today finds him established as one of the most successful stockmen of Teton County Montana.

Mr. Savory was born October 24, 1863, a son of Henry A. and Anna Upjohn Savory, both of whom also were natives of England. The father died in Thornage, Norfolk County, England, in 1909 at the age of seventy four but the mother is still living and resides at Thornage. Sixteen children came to their union and of these Ernest a. is sixth in order of birth.

To the age of seven our subject was educated in the schools of his native shire, being then apprenticed to learn the miller's trade and it was upon the close of his four years' apprenticeship that he came to the United States. Locating at Minneapolis, Minnesota, he followed his trade there two years and then in 1887 pushed farther west, settling at Dupuyer, Teton County, Montana. Here he engaged in the raising of live stock and he has now spent twenty five years in that line of business with large profit. There are six hundred acres in his estate and he raises and grazes large numbers of horses and cattle. His residence is at Dupuyer. His capital with which to begin his independent career consisted of a thorough knowledge of his trade, pluck, energy, a large stock of perseverance, and good business ability and by their use he has acquired that competence which makes him one of the substantial men of Teton County.

In September 1897 at Dupuyer Montana was solemnized the marriage of Mr. Savory and Miss Annie Bail whose birthplace also occurred across the water, she being a daughter of Erin's Isle. Mr. and Mrs. Savory have no children.
